(she/her) Dancer, choreographer, producer and community arts facilitator.



I use the body as the central tool for creation, alongside text, object and space, creating works that balance darkness and fear with light, hope and reflection. I use movement as a vehicle to spark empowerment and change, encouraging active witnessing by audiences and participants.

I strongly believe in the value of engaging in dialogue and critical discussion in the artistic process, creating work that is deeply rooted in considering its place and context in the world around us.


In 2020, I was a performer with GUTS Dance (Mparntwe, Arrernte Country) for the regional Australian tour of ‘The Perception Experiment’ and the Darwin Festival presentation of ‘Dance: A Short Homage’. I worked with the Sunshine Coast Council on the Place2Play program, creating the site-responsive participatory work ‘Beats x Caloundra’ presented at Caloundra Regional Gallery in December. In March 2021, I performed in Liesel Zink’s work ‘Awesome: A state of wonder and fear’ at the World Science Festival in Brisbane.

My first full-length work ‘Fertile Ground’, created alongside Michael Smith, premiered at Metro Arts in May 2021 with a highly successful season. Supported by Ausdance QLD, Australasian Dance Collective, Dancenorth, Lucy Guerin Inc, GUTS Dance, HOTA and the Australia Council for the Arts, this work was a significant milestone in my career as an independent artist. It’s experimental nature pushed the boundaries of contemporary dance, and we received incredible feedback from audiences. Fertile Ground was then performed in Mparntwe/Alice Springs as part of SPRING.LOADED.DANCE festival in September 2021, and will tour to lutruwita/Tasmania as a part of MONA FOMA in January 2022.

I have a long history working with young people, using dance as a tool for expression, confidence and creativity. From 2013-2018 I was a facilitator for COSMOU and CONARTE (Spain), leading movement workshops for students alongside creating multidisciplinary performances with young people. I have been a choreographic collaborator for ‘Alice Can Dance’ with GUTS Dance / Central Australia, creating large-scale contemporary dance works with over 200 young people in Mparntwe since 2018. I have also worked in remote communities as part of Artists on Tour with Artback NT since 2019.

As a producer, I am passionate about festivals which disrupt and surprise audiences. In 2013 I co-founded AGITART: Figueres es mou (Spain), a cultural project consisting of an annual international dance festival, audience engagement projects, a touring dance company, theatre programming and collaborations with international partners. From 2018 - 2021 I was Program Manager for Supercell Festival of Contemporary Dance (Brisbane) working with the festival team on the past four successful festivals.

Supported by the Regional Arts Fund and Arts Queensland’s Individuals Fund, I am undertaking a professional development project across 2021-2022, developing my skills as an emerging dance dramaturg through self-directed research. This project aims to address the shortfall of specialised dance dramaturges in Australia, particularly in the independent sector and promoting critical discussion and clarity in new work development.

I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Dance Performance) (QUT) as well as a Postgraduate Diploma of Contemporary Dance from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance (UK) and a Postgraduate in Production and Cultural Event Management from the University of Barcelona (Spain).
